Description: This photo of the Toronto Suburban Car # 105 from the Carr collection was taken in 1917. The Toronto Suburban Railway was incorporated in 1894. The line eventually ran from the Keele and St. Clair terminal, Toronto, through Georgetown, Acton, and Guelph, passing through the Toronto Township communities of Summerville, Dixie, Cooksville, Britannia and Meadowvale. The railway ran through the Carr Farm at Conc 2 NDS, Lot 16. The Carr farm was located on the northwest corner of Hurontario Street and Burnhamthorpe Road West, Conc 2 NDS Lot 16. In the 1877 Historical Atlas of Peel County this property was owned by Charles Wilcox. In 1926 it was acquired by Robert Norman Carr and his wife, the former Mary Alice Hawkins. The Carr family was involved in mixed farming, primarily dairy. The Toronto Suburban Railway went through the farm. In 1960 the farm was sold to S. B. McLaughlin and the buildings on it demolished. It is now the site of Square One Shopping Centre.
